What does the poet tell us about the hero and his situation? He was lost and needed his comrades' help to return. He tried to save his life and return his comrades home. He was roving the seas for places to plunder and destroy. He was struggling to fight Troy and the Sun god.

    Sing to me of the man, Muse, the man of twists and turns driven time and again off course, once he had plundered the hallowed heights of Troy. Many cities of men he saw and learned their minds, many pains he suffered, heartsick on the open sea, fighting to save his life and bring his comrades home. But he could not save them from disaster, hard as he strove— the recklessness of their own ways destroyed them all, the blind fools, they devoured the cattle of the Sun and the Sun god blotted out the day of their return. Launch out on his story, Muse, daughter of Zeus, start from where you will—sing for our time too. (from The Odyssey by Homer)
